i've explained this before
You can't compare the civil rights movement with the gay movement.
I just did.

How is denying someone service because they're gay different than denying someone service because they're black or because they're a Christian?

Lesbian waitress also tried to to intimidate that couple with lies about gay comments they never said ( do i know how that feels )
No, she didn't. The couple was anonymous until THEY came forward. The waitress was trying to get attention for herself and have people feel sorry for her, not to intimidate anyone.

The bakery did not deny service. They offered alternatives, just not the desecration of marriage.
The baker makes wedding cakes. The couple asked for a wedding cake. The baker refused. That's denial of service.

If you put a thousand gay people on one side of a field, and a thousand straight people on the other side of the same field,....

I was going to say that what you would have is a slimmer, healthier, cleaner, wealthier, happier group on the side with the gay people.
Which is true but...

What you'd really have is two thousand human beings. Two thousand people, who all have the same daily needs of food and love, who all would probably do the right thing given the chance, who all are perfect in Gods eyes, and who all are the same.

And in the end, ll I can say is, I pray that you get all the love and blessings you deserve.

And many many gay people contribute to causes with abuse, child trafficking, bullying, animals, housing,...causes with children are important to us. Most of us were treated poorly because of hatred like yours. We just don't go around announcing, hey I'm gay and helping children be better. We don't need to, it's not about the attention, it's about the cause..
REALLY ?? name me that hospital or homeless shelter, or that battered women's shelter that was built by gay money.
I too want to visit and contribute to those places that gays built.
Name even one.

The gay couple deliberately chose that bakery to demand that the owners accept their 'faith' in a fallacious marriage. That is unconstitutional.

there is a big difference between gays and christian right there on display.
As Christians we believe the birth of any baby to be a blessing from God.
Only a gay would see it as an inconvenience and UNWELCOME in the world.

Is this a sincere question? Gay people couldn't even publicly reveal that they were gay until relatively recently (some still can't). And you expect that they should be forming large organizations and building hospitals?

ooooooh my god end this ridiculous thread gay people are getting married and what is the difference to anybody. 45000 post on a useless topic noooobody will ever agree with any opposing opinion of the other on this topic. At this point people may as well be complaining about women being able to vote, because just like that it is decided and done. If gay dudes want to buttf and lesbians want to leg lick and get married toooo late. Who cares bigger problems in this world and way more interesting topics...u are all myself included are participating in one of the biggest distraction tactics in government history

Come judgement day there will be a lot of disappointed people. The people that practice same sex, the drunks/dopers, the thieves/cheaters, liars, adulterers, murders and especially the people that denied God.

Plenty of straight people see the birth of a baby as an inconvenience. That's why they give them away for adoption.

Honey, honey.... Obama isn't an extreme left winger. You are SO FAR to the right, everyone looks left-wing to you.

Yes, Obama's term will end and then we'll have Hillary Clinton for 8 years.

For civil union to be recognized by the federal law all it takes is a few votes from the house and senate. That is what the gays should be pushing for instead of waiting for each state legalize gay marriage that could take the next 50 years. I bet civil union marriage could be federal law in all 50 states before the next election, if gays wasn't so busy trying to step on Christian's toes.

to answer your question ( and should answer mine too )
YES i do indeed expect GAYS to build hospitals, homeless shelters, women abuse centers, feed the poor places, etc YES i do expect GAYS to also do that.

read enough of my post you'll come to the easy conclusion i'm very serious and sincere.
Now explain to me why any GAY hospital, homeless shelter, woman abuse center, etc cannot revel they were built by gays. Because that is just laughable. Gays have have NOT ever built anything to help everyone in need. Not once. Prove me wrong. I'm waiting.

yet GAYS are quick to criticize the one group well known for doing those things CHRISTIANS.
And you expect respect ? Try EARNING it.

I don't believe in sin and judgement. Satan is a bedtime story, and I don't pray to Santa clause. God loves and accepts me just the way I am. God is love.

Thank you for your post, sincerely.
